Wisconsin Fuel Funds

Wisconsin Fuel Funds

  • The Campaign to Keep Wisconsin Warm (CKWW), was created in 1994 by Energy Services, Inc, (ESI), a nonprofit that provides LIHEAP services in the Madison area. It received $200,000 in seed money in late 1996, as one of several low-income energy pilots funded by the Wisconsin governor's office from oil overcharge funds.

    Within less than a year, CKWW succeeded in raising over $200,000 in matching funds from private sector contributions. The program raised over $1.3 million in 2010.

    With ESI as the primary administering agency, funds are provided statewide to preferentially-selected LIHEAP administering agencies and other non-profits for distribution to low-income households.

  • Fuel funds sponsored by gas and electric utilities.
